Over the years, the Club has grown to over 500 members, with greater diversity of interest among its membership.  Despite the Association’s incredible growth, the Club's mission has never wavered; "to support sport, recreational and educational causes throughout Greater Oneonta Area.”  The 6th Ward Athletic Club has been known for it generosity, contributing tens of thousands of dollars every year to worthy community causes.  The Club's headquarters, restaurant and bar are located at 22 West Broadway here in Oneonta, NY.
